Third time lucky for Ascot United? All the Saturday team news

Will it be third time lucky for Ascot United at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday afternoon?

The Yellamen have played twice at their redeveloped home and are yet to come away with three points.

Despite that, Jamie Tompkins side remain top of the Combined Counties League Premier Division but an Abbey Rangers win would see the sides swap places.

Tompkins said: “No team news this week. We still have many players out injured. Luqman Kassim will be making his first appearance of the season.”

The manager has also resigned Kai Walters from Bracknell Town.

Boars boss Matthew Angell said: “Unfortunately still missing the services of George Marsh who has started a new job, Liam Vaughan with his ankle injury and now have lost influential captain Ali Dickie who will be out for a couple of weeks with an knock to his knee. However it has allowed players like Josh Francis and Aaron Holt to come in and they have performed brilliantly. We also welcome Ellis Wint into the squad which will add a little more quality to our midfield.”
